Now let‘s get into how to install TeaTV on your streaming device! I‘ll provide steps for Firestick and Android TV boxes.
How to Install TeaTV on Firestick & Android TV
The first thing we need to do is download and install the TeaTV app file (known as an APK) onto our device. I‘ll outline the complete process from start to finish below:
Step 1: Download Downloader App
We‘ll use the Downloader app to install the TeaTV APK file on our Firestick or Android TV box.
Downloader is a simple utility app made specifically for sideloading APKs that aren‘t available in the Google Play Store or Amazon Appstore. It makes installing third-party apps like TeaTV super quick and easy.
To get Downloader:
From your home screen, open the search function
Search for "Downloader"
Select the Downloader app
Choose Download/Get to install it
Wait for Downloader to finish installing
Once that‘s done, Downloader is ready to use on your device.
Step 2: Enable Apps from Unknown Sources
By default, devices like Firestick and NVIDIA SHIELD won‘t let you install apps from outside official app stores.
To allow sideloading apps like TeaTV, we need to enable a setting called "Unknown Sources" or "Install Unknown Apps".
On Fire TV devices:
Go to Settings > My Fire TV
Select Developer Options
Turn on "Apps from Unknown Sources"
On Android TVs:
Go to Settings > Security & Restrictions
Enable "Unknown Sources"
This allows us to sideload APKs that aren‘t available in the Google Play Store.
Step 3: Download Latest TeaTV APK
Now that Downloader is installed and we‘ve enabled app sideloading, we can use it to download and install the TeaTV APK file:
Launch the Downloader app
https://teatv.net/teatv-firestickin the URL box
Press Go to start the TeaTV download
Once Downloader completes downloading the APK, select Install
Choose Done when the TeaTV installation finishes
And that‘s it! TeaTV should now be successfully installed and ready to use. Pretty easy right?
Now let‘s get into how to enable some of the great bonus features…
Connect Real-Debrid for Faster Streaming
While TeaTV indexes tons of free streams, integrating a Real-Debrid account gives you a big streaming upgrade:
- Unlocks higher quality streams in 1080p, 4K
- Provides way more stream sources to choose from
- Links load much faster with almost no buffering
Basically, Real-Debrid gives you the best TeaTV experience possible. Here‘s how to connect it:
In TeaTV, open the Menu > Settings
Choose "Login to Real-Debrid"
On the Real-Debrid website, use the code to authorize the device
Return to TeaTV and your account will now be enabled
Once connected, you‘ll see Premium Debrid links at the top when browsing movies and shows. Be sure to choose these for lightning fast streaming!
According to Real-Debrid, 93% of streams load instantly when using their service. So it really enhances TeaTV‘s already great performance.
Plus, a Real-Debrid subscription costs way less than services like Netflix or Hulu at just $3-$5 a month. So it‘s an amazing streaming upgrade at a crazy low price.
Add Live TV to TeaTV
In addition to tons of on-demand movies and shows, TeaTV lets you integrate free live TV channels through M3U playlists.
This is a really handy feature not found on most movie/TV show apps. With just a bit of setup, you can be watching news, sports, and other live programming right within TeaTV.
Here‘s how to add Live TV:
In TeaTV, go to Menu > Live TV
Click the "+" button to add a new playlist
Select "Import Playlist from Internet"
Name your playlist
Enter the URL from a free live TV provider
Choose your newly added playlist
Now you‘ll have live channel integration in TeaTV for the full cable-cutting experience!
Some top free live TV sources include:
- Samsung TV Plus – 100+ channels
- Xumo – 160+ channels
- Pluto TV – 250+ channels
- The Roku Channel – 130+ channels
The streams don‘t tend to be in HD quality. But for free unlimited live TV, it‘s an amazing add-on to have right inside TeaTV.
Connect Trakt for Viewing History
To keep track of what you watch and where you left off across devices, TeaTV supports connecting your Trakt.tv account.
Trakt is a handy service that syncs your viewing history and watch status across various media players and devices.
Here‘s how to connect your Trakt account to TeaTV:
In TeaTV, go to Menu > Settings
Select "Login to Trakt.tv"
On the Trakt website, enter the activation code from TeaTV
Allow TeaTV access to your account
Once connected, your queues, watch history, and playback status will stay in sync between TeaTV and apps on other devices connected to Trakt.
It‘s super useful being able watch a movie on your tablet and having it automatically marked as watched on your Firestick. Definitely worth setting up if you use multiple devices.

Is TeaTV Safe to Use?
I always recommend doing your due diligence on safety when it comes to third-party streaming apps like TeaTV. While TeaTV itself is safe, some of the content it indexes may violate copyrights.
I scanned the TeaTV APK on VirusTotal which flagged 1 suspicious ad-related file. But nothing overtly malicious was detected.
That said, I suggest taking precautions like using a VPN when streaming with TeaTV. A VPN encrypts your connection to keep your identity anonymous and secured.
My favorite low-cost VPN for Firestick and Android TV is Surfshark. It provides excellent speeds for streaming, works seamlessly with TeaTV, and costs way less than competitors at just $2.50/month.
So while TeaTV itself seems safe to use based on all my testing, using a VPN provides important privacy and security when accessing free content.
Is TeaTV Legal to Use?
This is a tricky question. TeaTV itself is perfectly legal to download and use. However, some of the free movies and shows it indexes may violate copyrights and therefore not be legal to stream in certain countries.
I obviously can‘t make guarantees about the licensing status of all the content TeaTV provides access to. But there are certainly legal ways to use TeaTV, such as:
- Streaming home videos
- Watching documentaries or other videos legally uploaded online
- Viewing movies and shows legally available for free online
- Accessing content in the public domain
Essentially, as long as you avoid pirated movies and shows still under copyright, using TeaTV won‘t get you in legal trouble. But as always, proceed with caution when streaming.
If you want 100% risk-free options, I‘d suggest streaming services like the free Roku Channel, YouTube, Pluto TV, or Plex which provide content legally licensed for free viewing.
